A Curriculum Vita (C.V) is a written document of your education and the jobs you have done that you send them when you are applying for a job.
In other words, A Curriculum vitae (C.V) is a summary of somebody’s educational and work experience, for the information of possible future employers.
It may also be defined as a brief account of a person’s education, qualification, and previous occupations, typically sent with a job application.

when i read this paragraph i thought i could also make comment due to this
Hey there this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know

with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
